Video summary: Book trailer for my picture book Stack the Cats! I wrote and illustrated it for ages 2-5.

Hi, I'm Susie Ghahremani aka Boygirlparty! I make art and nature inspired gifts for all ages.

Welcome to Boygirlparty ® -- original illustrations on unique, useful gifts for animal lovers. I'm Susie Ghahremani, an author and illustrator based in San Diego, California. Everything at http://boygirlparty.etsy.com is my artwork.

* I typically ship orders within 2-3 business days.
* You can learn more about me & my artwork at http://boygirlparty.com
* My shop is called Boygirlparty® because it's much easier to spell and much more fun than my actual name!
* Please hashtag photos of your purchases #boygirlparty on Instagram!

Thank you for supporting my artwork!
Please tell a friend or share the link to my shop -- http://boygirlparty.etsy.com ! Your word of mouth referrals help me so much.

* Q: What does Boygirlparty mean?
A "boy/girl party" is a nostalgic term (yes, it's a real phrase!) for the first party you go to with all the kids you know. I hope this name invokes the whimsy of my artwork.

* Q: Where else can I find your artwork?
My artwork exhibits in art shows and boutiques internationally -- from the Uffizi's gift shop to your local handmade shop. I offer wholesale, please contact me if you run a shop and would like to carry my art!

* Q: Can you tell me more about your shop? Can you tell me more about your art?
Boygirlparty® was named "shop you wish you knew about sooner" by BuzzFeed, and “the indie, start-up version of Hello Kitty" by Flavorpill!

Believe it or not, I've been around for a long time: I launched Boygirlparty® in 2001. I started making stationery and gifts before Etsy was a website -- and I am now one of Etsy's best-sellers in the Art category! I was one of the first shops on Etsy and continue to be one of the longest running.

In addition to running my Etsy shop from home, I am an award-winning illustrator, an internationally exhibiting artist, a designer, an author, and a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) where I have also taught.

I create imagery inspired by a love of books, music, nature, animals, pattern, and my midwestern roots. My primary medium is painting in gouache. I like to create functional objects that help people bring joy into their homes and daily life.

Everything in my shop is created with my original artwork!

Thank you so much for finding me and for taking an interest in Boygirlparty and my artwork!

Sizing details

PLEASE CONSULT THE SIZE CHARTS!!!
Some of my shirts are printed on American Apparel ladies sizes which run very small, like juniors sizes.

Here's a helpful visual comparison showing real people wearing
Unisex sizes:

Ladies sizes:
http://www.customink.com/items/sizing/187200_lineup/standard.htm

Again, American Apparel ladies shirts (not Unisex) run small!

The sizing of these shirts varies slightly based on material. For 100% cotton shirts, please do not use a heated setting while drying or the shirt may shrink.
